A note from Bill Jeffcoat about being a small town photographer:
“One of the delights was one got in on a lot of social and family events by taking photos at the location. Weddings, family gatherings, reunions, class reunions, whatever when those who could, hired a photographer.
“Knowing all the people, the cameraman would just hang around after his job and visit and socialize. Normally, he would not be invited to these affairs, but it gave him a chance to observe the family interacting with each other and record all of this in his mind to mull over and think about the small town society as part of his life also.”
